New PTSD Iphone Application Available

New PTSD Coach IPhone App
The Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense have teamed together to develop a free IPhone application, called the 'PTSD Coach', for Veterans dealing with symptoms of PTSD.  The App can link them to local sources for support, help them manage symptoms, and provide education about PTSD.  PTSD Coach is also being encouraged for families and friends of those experiencing PTSD to download. 

The application is not a replacement for treatment and is only intended to be an additional resource for Veterans with PTSD to combine with mental health treatment and other medical services available to veterans through VA Benefits.  There are plans to also publish an Android version in mid June 2011.
